Special Agar For The Qualitative Detection Of Veterinary Relevant Dermatophytes
Test applicable to: Dog, Cat, Farm and Small AnimalsSample: Hair roots, Dandruff, Scabs and Skin Scrapings
Mykodermo Assay DTM is a classical dermatophyte ringworm test media in an agar slant vial format.
Mykodermo Assay Trio is an innovative petri dish format combining three of the most important dermatophyte culture media.
Simple Test Procedures with Fast Results
Both test formats ensure a fast confirmation of a clinically suspected diagnosis through a colour change of DTM or DTM and ESA media, respectively. ESA is an optimised medium for the reliable visual and microscopic differentiation of dermatophytes and SAB/SDA, enables a faster growth compared to DTM and ESA.
Dermatophytosis (ringworm) is one of the most frequent infectious dermatoses in small animals (cats, dogs, and rabbits), horses and farm animals but also in humans (zoonosis). It is caused by dermatophytes, filamentous fungi which use keratin (skin, hair and claws) as a carbon source. The clinically most relevant species are Microsporum (M.canis, M.gypseum, M.pesicolor), Trichophyton (T.verrucosum, T.menta grophytes) and Epidermophyton.
Fast Reliable Diagnostics (colour indicator)
In the case of a suspect ongoing dermatophytosis (spotted, patchy area of alopecia, often non-pruritic), a specific diagnosis should be obtained by performing a culture using specific dermatophyte culture media.
